This is a very rare Type-I Super Grade rifle chambered in .250-3000 Savage.The rifle has been professionally restored and is in NRA excellent, approaching perfect condition.
This rifle came to us from a Wisconsin estate and was already partway trough a restoration. While we would have preferred the rifle had been left in original, even if rough condition, we had little choice but to complete the restoration. Regardless, the end result is a fantastic example of the very desirable Type-I Super Grade which has been restored to a faithful likeness of the original finishes. Add to the appeal, this rifle is chambered in .250-3000 which is one of the hardest to find of the model 70 catalog chamberings.
The stock is fully restored in very good condition with no cracks or stains and just minor handling marks and blemishes. The checkering shows some wear, but is still well defined and has not been sanded. The stock is unmodified and retains its original steel buttplate. The bluing is near perfect at 98% with just a couple very minor scratches and no edge wear, rubs or other blemishes. The bore of the 24" CMS steel barrel is in very good condition with strong rifling, no pits and just minor throat erosion. The rifle is mechanically perfect with no evident problems. All correct .250-3000 Savage parts are present, including the #7 magazine box and the unique .250-3000 extractor ring. All aspects of the rifle are correct for a Type-I Super Grade rifle, including the stock, bottom metal and Redfield gold bead front sight. The rifle is fitted with a period correct Lyman 48 WJS receiver sight in the proper full block base. Based on our examination, we conclude this rifle is a factory-original, other than the restoration work.
